Research Data Management

Research Data Management

Research Data Management (RDM) is a set of practices that we support for faculty, grad students, and undergrads at Pitt.


  • Planning your project’s data and writing a data management plan (DMP)
  • Getting data:
    • Properly storing and organizing your data files
    • Finding and citing other people's data and services (OPEDAS)
  • Processing data: cleaning and extract-transform-load (ETL) operations
  • Exploring and understanding data: analysis and visualization
  • Presenting data: visualization
  • Sharing data:
    • Preparing data for reuse
    • Licensing and depositing in an appropriate repository
  • Preserving data in the long term


  • Consultations: make an automated appointment here, or e-mail us to set up a meeting.
  • Workshops:
    • We offer several workshops every Fall and Spring semester, open to the Pitt community and general public, free of charge. See what we have to offer here.
    • We also offer workshops by request for your lab or similar group (time and expertise permitting). E-mail us to make an inquiry.
